of 2012, just days after the brutal murders of four americans in the diplomatic outpost in benghazi, libya, i was perhaps to say outright that our government loyed to us about what happened. it is been two years, and through subkwent hearings and leaks and investigative reports and ever- changing reports from the current administration, i never had to recant or clarify my original blunt statement. this week judicial watch finally obtained bombshell e-mails revealing that the top white house aide instructed susan rice to go on shoes and spin the loy that benghazi was due to a video. ine caught with the pants down, the white house continued to play the american public for fools, giving comments like these from white house press hack jay con man carne. >> why are you would hoking back the information and why was it not turned over to the congress and released with all of the other e-mails and it is directly relevant. >> john. >> why did it take a court case. >> i can say again and dpaen and you can keep asking again and again. this document was not about benghazi. >> right? not only president

is why did an ambassador have little or no real security in a place like libya on september 11th. >> that's a great question. who was in charge of security at the time when we knew that there were a number of attacks, a number of threats leading up to this incident. we knew they had drones in the sky watching ago live video feed as this battle unfolded for 7 to 8 hours. ty woods, of course you remember he was killed tragically in this attack, a navy seal who was killed, said when the bodies arrived back in the united states, hillary clinton looked right into his eyes and still was blaming it on that video. listen. >> well it, came out on the 12th, i'm sorry, on the 14th. this was about the same time that i met hillary clinton when the bodies came in to andrews air force base. and i think i mentioned this to you before. hillary clinton came up to me and i gave her a handshake and a hug. and when i shook her hand she said to me: we are going to have the film maker arrested. >> do you i think this may be te single most shocking thing in the benghazi story. secretary of state doesn't get to

-related terrorist groups in libya. they used those american-provided weapons to get rid of gadhafi. and then the bloodshed didn't discontinue, but it culminated in the attack upon the consulate in benghazi which resulted in the death of american heroes. so the failure of obama's policy was that the weapons and the material aid that was given to al qaeda resulted in the death of these four american heroes. >> let me play for you, and i mention november 28th of 2012. this is a similar statement made by jay carney may 8th, 2013 saying that the white house's only involvement with the talking points and the state department's only involvement in the talking points was just changing in the name consulate. let me play this for you in light of the rhodes memo and what it means for you. >> cia drafted these talking points and redrafted these talking points. the fact that there are inputs is always the case in a process like this. but the only edits made by anyone here at the white house were stylistic and nonsubstantive. they corrected the description of the building where the facility in b
that they pushed this and they had rice say it and when we had gregory hicks, who was number two in libya say in testimony that his jaw dropped when he heard this, that was the first electric moment. this is the second electric moment. >> not only gregory hicks, but the former director of the cia says when he understood susan rice, they had nothing to do with the video. >> they're making a major distinction between the set of talking points which the intelligence community provided and heavily edited after input from the white house and state department. but that set of talking points didn't mention the video. it wasn't ant the video and susan rice's story was all about the video in concert with all the other e-mails that we saw in the white house issued talking points. when you look at the new batch of documents, you have this reclassification or classification of documents that were previously up classified. the timeline is fascinating. june of 2013, judicial watch makes a request for these documents. august of 2013, the house subpoenas the documents. in february of 2014, somebody somewhere

libya, media reports said the same thing. and investigations by the senate intelligence committee and "the new york times" both come up with the same conclusion. so even with what susan rice said, if not entirely accurate was kind of close to what other people found. so if there's a difference of opinion here, it wasn't -- >> i think it's close to what we know months and years later now. my question, is this something in the republican brain soup? did they somehow get the idea that something bad happened here? if you've got boehner under sodium pen thol, imagiathol, im thought -- what's your worst case scenario about what happened. not press releases that were issued. did anybody deserve blame for a beloved ambassador getting killed? >> i don't have any idea what they believe. i think some believe that. >> believe what? hillary was out doing something else? >> something like that. or that there had to be some kind of lack of preparedness on the obama administration's part for this to have happened. i think a lot of them don't even believe it. they're really drinking crazy juice ov

killed, we had a terrorist attack in libya that was contrary to the president's triumphant narrative. it flew in the face of his strongest argument for reelection, that he has been strong on terror. there was and this fellow, the sleazy and gratuitously fellow and his colleagues spun the events, they twisted the events that happened in benghazi to fit the narrative. they could not admit it was a successful terrorist attack that took down the ambassador and his three colleagues because that flew in the face of the president's triumphant narrative and his march to reelection. so they spun it. here in my opinion, is where we faltered. we should have concentrated on two things. why did we have such a light footprints in such a volatile country to begin with? where was the security? i almost got killed in benghazi. >> we watched it on the air. >> and i know these militia. they turn on their mother in a heart bet. these are people with no character, no morals, that today their motivation is islam. tomorrow it's money, weapons, whatever it is. we should have had a much stronger footprints t

says it was about the wider middle east and not specifically about libya. >> the e-mail was about protests around the region. if you want to tell me today that the protest and, again -- >> but benghazi was part of it, right? >> right. i want to refer you to the cia talking points on that. most people remember there were demonstrations around the region that were in reaction to what people felt was an offensive video. >> you were being cautious. you're saying there's an investigation there. that's 9/12. why on 9/14 is ben rhodes writing an e-mail saying judgments this was inspired by a video. why wasn't it we don't know. >> do you need a copy of the cia report? >> i've read them. >> it is a cut and paste from the talking points which much to your disappointment turned out to be produced by the cia. >> mark halperin, that's just not true. first of all, here's nancy pelosi. i think she said it best right here when she said benghazi, benghazi, benghazi. >> what i will say is benghazi, benghazi, benghazi. why aren't we talking about something else? whatever was in that -- what i know o

all they want. the fact of the matter is, at the time of the tragedy and even this day, libya is a very unstable situation post-revolution. the object is to do the best we can to try to change that dynamic to create a more stable government that provide security not only for us but also for its own people. a fair statement? >> absolutely. as i mentioned, since 2013, the u.s. has been planning in helping the libyan government with forces. our diplomats were involved with reaching out to civil society. it's a tough challenge. realize a lot of this is on the libyan shoulders. this country needs to reach a broad, political reconciliation among its faction before they can be in in a position to receive outside help. when i talk to people in the state department, there is a sense where there is a lack of partnership on a sense of the other side and you need that. they held elections in 2012 that, by all accounts, were relatively transparent and fair. they remain very pro-american, which has been contrasted to many other countries in the region. >> i want to thank all four of you for
